and mother Makes Five - Series 1,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: And Mother Makes Five - The Complete Series 1 [DVD] (DVD)
Those familiar with the preceeding four series of "And Mother Makes Three" will feel quite at home with this follow-up to the end of the previous stage of the tale. The adults have started their married life together and the children are just slightly older and wiser (but not much as the series were all made in quick succession so that they did not "age" too soon) and the humour is still the same mixture of misunderstandings and chaotic consequences.
Viewers coming to these as an adult after seeing them previously as a child will soon recognise the clever use of the pantomine technique of lines that adults laugh at in a different way but these episodes were made nearly forty years ago and what is discussed in them is nothing to worry about compared to what I overhear children saying every working day in a secondary school rated on multiple occasions as "Excellent" by Ofsted. Remember also that the youngest cast member has since become an Oscar winner for his work on "Shakespeare In Love".
I cannot wait for the subsequent series I have ordered from Amazon to be delivered.

As I find modern Britain quite depressing at times-it's not as great as it's deemed to be (say no more!) watching again 'And Mother Makes Five' it's like taking me back to a different life (a better one!) True,this programme now seems very dated-as anything from the 70s would-and it makes me feel very old (I'm 51 now) but it's pure nostalgia and,if only for that reason,it's great to watch again-though,having said that,it is also a bit depressing as well,as I want to go back to those innocent times again-I'll have to try building myself a time machine!Anyhow,I will give this 5 stars!It's still sad that Robin Davies has died-a shame!!
